SOURCE: White smoke exhaust
White smoke is caused by coolant or water coming out the tail pipe. There is a chance that the white smoke was caused by water splashing up from a puddle onto the exhaust pipe. Keep an eye on the coolant level in the radiator in any event. If its less then there leak coolant leak in the car engine which is causing this problem....

This is usually an indication of a bad head gasket.I gasket. The white smoke is the coolant leaking out of the engine and winding up in the oil passages, due to a bad head gasket. To confirm this,
1. check oil. Is level increased, or milky appearance?
2. Is coolant level dropping, but u don't see any signs of leaks?
The above indicates a bad head gasket, causing the white smoke u describe. Let me know how u make out.

your cooling system is preasureising due to a leaking cylinder head gasket the white smoke you see is coolant passing through the exhaust valve on the offending cylinder have the cooling system tested for CO content hope this advice helps

The most likely cause is a blown head gasket,but it could also be a warped head,was the motor overheated prior to the problem starting? The white smoke is steam,check the underside of the oil fill cap and dipstick for a grayish brown residue,check the coolant for a low level and oil conatamination,either of these conditions verify that a head isn't fully sealed.Unless your moderately skilled mechanically this a job to be done by a shop.A good shop will perform a leakdown test to verify this.
